Rap Opera with Opera Cultura

We are reimagining the art form of opera to encompass one of the primary social musical languages of today - rap.  Master beatboxer/Rap Artist Carlos Aguirre will work with youth to help tell their stories through a new hybrid art form. The project will draw on socioeconomic issues affecting youth to create a narrative of their experiences living in San Jose.  The project will culminate in a workshop presentation of scenes from the work  and include noted artists Cellista and soprano Alexandra Sessler

Hard to Watch - dance and music performance

  • CounterPulse

Hard To Watch - June 28, 2017
CounterPulse
San Fransisco, CA

Hard to Watch is an evening length dance performance of private encounter. What are we willing to see? How are we willing to be seen? Through the use of Authentic Movement and spoken word this performance creates a game of hide and seek with shadow and beauty, with shame and essence. This work takes the threshold between the intimate and the private as a starting point, and then moves to cultivate a space of seeing that can hold an encounter with both the self and other.
